Clash of the Titans: BMW F13 M6 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R

The guys from are known for the 1 mile high tests that are mainly focused on the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration times. This time they got their hands on two of the best GT sports cars around: the M6 and the GT-R.

As usual they've been focused on the acceleration times alone, forgetting about some other interesting stuff that should've been mentioned. Anyway, let's take a look at what they found out.

Both cars have over 500 HP (the M6 560 HP and the GT-R 545 HP), both are turbocharged and both have dual-clutch gearboxes. However, the BMW has a 4.4-liter V8 under its bonnet, while the Nissan has a 3.8-liter V6 and a four-wheel drive system under the chassis.

Comparing the interior of the 2 cars, you can't say the GT-R is worth more than $50,000. Everything inside feels outdated (there have been 4 different models of this GT-R launched since 2007) and all the trims and tools feel cheap.

Furthermore, you will never be able to fit a person in the back seats (excepting little children) of the Nissan. Inside the BMW, on the other hand, you'll be able to get 2 medium-sized adults in there and everything feels right, from the leather on the seats up to the plastic on the dash and the carbon fibre trims.

Overall, the Nissan feels like $50,000 dollars (even though it had a price tag of over 100k) whilst the BMW feels just as it is priced ($123,000 for the test car). The M6 is a more usable car too. It's not as hard and stiff as the GT-R which you cannot use on any kind of road excepting perfectly smooth ones.

Yes, the GT-R was faster than the M6 on the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) test without the launch control but considering all the other clear disadvantages the GT-R had, no one would rather get that Japanese race car over the style of the Beamer.
